Hello Stranger

Hello [A]stranger, put your loving hand in mine,

hello [D]stranger, put your loving hand in [A]mine,

you are a [E]stranger, and you're a pal of [A]mine.

 

Get up rounder, let a working may lay down,

get up rounder, let a working man lay down,

you are a rounder, but you're all out and down.

 

Every time I ride Six and Fourth Street car,

every time I ride Six and Fourth Street car,

I can see my baby peeping through the bars.

 

She bowed her head, she waved both hands at me,

she bowed her head, she waved both hands at me,

I'm prison bound, I'm longing to be free.

 

Oh, I'll see you, when your troubles are like mine,

oh, I'll see you, when your troubles are like mine,

oh, I'll see you, when you haven't got a dime.

 

Weeping like a willow and mourning like a dove,

weeping like a willow and mourning like a dove,

there's a girl of the country that I really love.

 

+ repeat verse 1
